Political Roundup: Fla. Gov.; Edwards in N.C.; 'What Women Want'

A few political nuggets heading into the weekend:

* Former Florida Democratic Party chairman Scott Maddox dropped his bid for governor Friday and quickly threw his support to Rep. Jim Davis.  Maddox's campaign has been beset by controversy since June when revelations came to light that the state party's finances were mismanaged during his tenure.  Davis leads in polling conducted in the race, though neither he nor state Sen. Rod Smith, the other Democratic candidate, are well known by the state's voters. Here's the AP write-up.

* Former North Carolina senator John Edwards will be in Raleigh on Monday for a fundraiser to benefit 13th District Rep. Brad Miller (D). Miller was an early supporter of Edwards's 2004 presidential bid.

* Who says bipartisanship is dead? Democratic pollster Celinda Lake and Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway have co-authored a book entitled "What Women Really Want." The book aims to "reveal the ways in which a newly defined, united power base among women is reshaping the state of our nation much more than the two-sided politics of Left and Right," according to the listing.

I think the idea of Maddox dropping out is good... Jim Davis is the best person to lead the state of Fla into the new era.

He is a moderate and would be very appealing to many people here. Keep your eyes focused on him.. He could very well be the next big candidate to follow.
